Catalina Taco Salad

A friend of mine recently found out she has Celiac Disease which means she can't have anything with gluten in it. It was a huge diet change, but there's actually quite a bit she can still eat. Yay for still being able to eat ice cream!! Well anyway, we were all going up to our cottage so we wanted to try and do a gluten-free meal. I found a salad in this blog and figured we'd give it a try. It was really yummy! I couldn't however find a gluten-free Catalina dressing (maybe they all are, I don't know) but I decided to go with a Lime Vinaigrette from Newman's Own since I knew she mention they were usually gluten free.

4 cups spinach
1 can kidney beans drained and rinsed
1/2 cup frozen corn
2 small tomatoes, chopped
1 avocado seeded and cubed
1/2 cup grated cheese
2 green onions sliced thinly
1 cup Frito's
1/2 cup dressing

Toss everything together in a large bowl and serve immediately. If you think there will be leftovers, add the Frito's to each individual serving instead of mixing them with the salad. Otherwise they will get soggy.

As you can see this pic is without the Frito's, but make sure you add them! It's even better with the Frito's.
